Gagne traded. He's not impressed. The Los Angeles Kings have traded Simon Gagne to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick that they acquired from Phoenix, as seen on Philadelphia's official Twitter account.

Simon Gagne helped the Kings win a cup.
But he's not as big as Nolan or King or Penner and he's been a healthy scratch.
So the Kings traded him to a team they like to make trades with and a place he's familiar with.

My senior year of high school I named a resilient housefly after him that refused to die in Mrs. Frankowiac’s Economics class. He scored a hat trick in a poem I wrote in 8th grade, which would give him four for his career. I took his first name as my own in sophomore year Spanish.
